to have michelle obama, and you're going to have the president talking about these issues. i think they can energize people and get a big bounce out of this convention that basically the republicans didn't get because they had basically a completely dishonest convention. they didn't talk about facts. they had nothing but platitudes. they talked about the forefathers, their aunts, their uncles, their moms, their dads, but they didn't talk about tash cut for the rich. they didn't talk about eliminating capital gains. they didn't talk about sending vouchers out instead of medicare. they didn't talk about what they stand for. and the good thing about president obama, he's not afraid to say what he believes in. when he goes on the trail, he says we're going to increase taxes on the very rich. and you know what? that's what it's all about. >> mr. cohen, can this country trust mitt romney. can wage earners trust mitt romney from what you heard last week? >> not at all. mitt romney brought us a new verb in the english language. bained. workers know they're bained when their jobs are sent o
